I have always been one to love a good floral print. This fascination probably began as a child when my mother obsessively clothed me in Laura Ashley dresses during the time we lived in London. What better way to flower crush than in this Vintage Chanel piece covered in a  print reminiscent of some precious watercolor story. When wearing a dress like this, I tend to opt for a roomy sweater or a cropped jacket. In this case, I chose the ultimate sweater designed by Greg Chait for the Los Angeles based collection The Elder Statesman. If you are one to be drawn to color and eccentric luxury lifestyle accessories like a life-sized cashmere teddy bear than you should explore further. The range of children’s items, home goods, and women’s and men’s ready to wear is made up of high-quality materials, the core of which are cashmere yarns  and remarkable craftsmanship. Needless to say, he is a fashion force to be reckoned with who’s constant inspiration and clever techniques will continue to keep us on our toes. Last I saw him I was prepared to take the eye-popping orange and pink tie-dyed sweater off his back, I am secretly pleased he likes pink as much as I do. 

P.S. If you find yourself in the Los Angeles area, be sure to visit his store in West Hollywood.
